Ramona shot to fame after appearing in the hit BBC comedy

Outnumbered Karen is completely unrecognizable after ditching her famous blonde curls and quitting showbiz.

Former child star Ramona Marquez made her debut as Karen Brockman in the hit BBC One comedy in 2007, aged just six, and she was catapulted to stardom.

Her impeccable comedic timing was a huge hit with viewers, and she became the show’s most beloved character thanks to her one-liners and critical commentary.

Ramona starred in the hit BBC show, which aired until 2017 but returned for two one-off specials, alongside Hugh Dennis as dad Pete, Claire Skinner as mum Sue, and Tyger Drew-Honey and Daniel Roche playing his big brothers Jake and Ben.

The sitcom followed the family as they navigated life in London and won numerous accolades, with Ramona winning two British Comedy Awards for her iconic portrayal of moody Karen.

Six years after the last Outnumbered special aired, the former actress quit showbiz and enrolled in college to study languages.

Since becoming a household name, the 20-year-old is now studying for a degree in Spanish and Mandarin at the University of Manchester.

Before giving up her acting career, she also starred as Imogen Pollock in the 2009 TV movie Enid and voiced the character of Gwen in the festive animated film, Arthur Christmas.

She played a young Princess Margaret in the 2010 Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech, and also starred as one of Celia Imrie’s grandchildren in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Earlier this week, she stunned fans as she attended the launch of Boots’ new 17 makeup line and looked totally different from her iconic character.

Ramona had dyed her blonde hair an ombre shade of red, and her rock-inspired outfit was complemented by a black vest, low-rise jeans, and a navel piercing.

She also showed off her tattoo on her arm and finished her daring outfit with chunky black platforms, along with matching silver necklaces and earrings.

Fans were thrilled to see her on the red carpet for the launch, and this is only the second time she’s been seen in recent years, as she prefers to stay away from the spotlight.

Ramona reunited with her former Outnumbered co-stars Daniel and Tyger last year for lunch, and delighted fans excited to see the Brockman siblings grow up.
